Hello and welcome.

A few questions for you:
-Which exact model Mac mini?
-Which brand/model external DVD drive?
-Can you further explain "The icon appears but the display is black"?

/the Icon for the DVD player is loaded in the bottom bar. when I open it only a blank black display window appears. when loaded with a commercial DVD nothing happens. Mini Mac late 2012 with latest version of OS Catalina 10.15.4

Hi,

It could be a driver issue. I have never heard of VisionTech...do you have a specific model or a link to where you purchased it?
